Hey Kentucky catches up with Jeff Badet

With Matt Jones on vacation, Mary Jo Perino is sitting in the big chair over at the Hey Kentucky! studios and on the latest edition the special guest was former Kentucky wide receiver Jeff Badet. The Orlando native was a member of Mark Stoops’ first recruiting class and recorded 31 grabs for 670 yards and 4 touchdowns during the 2016 season. However, after that year Badet grad transferred to Oklahoma and is now a member of the Minnesota Vikings.

After spending last year on the practice squad, Badet has his eyes on making the 53-man roster. Before the real training camp begins he has a unique challenge he is trying to tackle. Badet is competing in “40 Yards of Gold” to determine who is the fastest professional football player. Badet feels very optimistic about his chances.

Badet admits that he keeps up with a good amount of his former Kentucky teammates and that many of his friends for life came from relationships formed in Lexington. Even though he left for Norman, Badet was apart of the first group that helped this program turn a corner. That should always be remembered.

      Thought the same. Apparently got his English degree from

      Always think it’s funny how kids treat they are “blessed to be apart of so-and-so program” when they commit when the word they’re using actually implies there being a void between the two.

      Waiting actually for the time someone transfers from a program and tweets how they feel “blessed to be apart FROM so-and-so program.”

    Jeff Badet? You mean the jerk that bailed on his UK teamates the year they needed him most? Could care less about this guy. Amazed he even thinks anyone in the Big Blue Nation cares about him in the NFL after the way he left here.

    Hard to even care what he says when he couldn’t be counted on and was rude after he left. Cats could have had 9 wins the year he didnt stay. DontgiveashtwhatBadetsays
